Link data to diagrams I: Getting started

Flowchart, org chart, and network diagram

Examples of diagrams with shapes.

Step 1: Get shapes on the page. This may seem obvious, but the import process discussed in this course works best when there are shapes on the page already. The diagrams shown here are prime examples. Flowchart, network diagram, or org chart — any diagram, really — can be associated with data. If you've already made a diagram, just open it up, and you're a third of the way there. And know too that you can always add more shapes later. Not all of them need to be on the page at first.
